To help control the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) across the country, all Australians have been asked to practise social (physical) distancing. In some cases people are required to, or may choose to, self-isolate. Understandably, the challenges associated with social distancing and isolation, including separation from loved ones,
loss of freedom and reduced income, are leading some people to experience feelings of anxiety, boredom, frustration and fear. This information sheet from the Australian Psychological Society outlines some useful strategies you can use to maintain good mental health during this unprecedented time of social (physical) distancing and isolation.
